Corbyn Joins the Pick-It Line

Although he left it until the very end of his tenure, Corbyn has become the third Labour leader in a row to be caught on camera picking his nose. Is this Labour’s Green New Deal?…

Labour’s found a bogeyman, and for once it’s not the ‘Zionists’…

Hypocritical Miliband Continues to Rack Up the Airmiles

Last April, Guido reported on Ed Miliband’s hypocrisy of constantly windbagging about the ‘climate emergency’ despite wracking up 19,000 air miles from his flights abroad, pumping out tonnes of carbon dioxide. Guido was similarly amused by Barry Gardiner’s tweet yesterday that referenced his “my plane back from the Climate Conference“…

It’s a new year now and therefore time to check back in with the king of podcasts to see how his climate crusade is going. Since our last check-in, he has flown to:

  • Athens, Greece (17-18 March 2019) – c.1500
  • Crete, Greece (7-12 July 2019) – c.1700
  • Canada – c.3300
  • South Africa – c.5600

Green Ed’s wracked up 12,000 air miles in 10 months – half the circumference of the globe. Unlike Greta who sailed across the sea and had team fly over to sail her boat, Ed’s being hypocritical without having to poo in a bucket…

When confronted with Guido’s last investigation, Ed said “I’m sure I could do more”.

Turns out Ed could do more – tonnes-worth of CO2 more…

Sources: “Reasons to Be Cheerful” podcast, register of interests.

UPDATE: Guido has been informed he made a mistake with this article, and must therefore revise the distances Red/Green Ed travelled. He only counted the journeys one way, therefore he in fact flew 24,000 miles in 10 months – the circumference of the globe. Our first article pointing out his hypocrisy covered the 19,000 miles he flew in 16 months from December 2017–April 2019. Not only is he continuing to not practice what he preaches, but he’s exponentially making the environment worse…

Miliband Lies to Constituents that he Voted for Brexit

Ed Miliband’s leaflet to his Brexit-voting Doncaster constituents includes the usual Labour lies about the NHS; however, it stretches the truth more than most when it comes to Brexit. The leaflet claims Miliband “voted nine times in Parliament for a deal”.

In reality, he has not voted for a single UK-EU deal that has been put on the floor of the house. He wasn’t even one of the 19 Labour MPs (including his constituency neighbour Caroline Flint) to back the first reading of Boris’ deal. A Guido fact check to the people of Doncaster: Ed Milliband has voted against every deal agreed with the EU, against No Deal, and in favour of delay every chance he got.

Jess Phillips Resignation Watch

Back in March, Jess Phillips gave an interview to the Times all about herself (quelle surprise), in which she said she would “almost certainly” quit the “controlling, bullying, chaotic” Labour Party if Tom Watson did. Jess has always been thought of as an honest politician – the clock is ticking…

Following Watson’s resignation last night, former Blair and Brown adviser Theo Bertram points out a running theme amongst Gordon Brown’s former advisors-turned MPs:

All eyes on Miliband and Ashworth then…

Which MPs Haven’t Collected their Extinction Rebellion Tree?

Well down the list of Extinction Rebellion’s Christmas list manifesto is to encourage the planting of more trees. As part of their Westminster protests, the climate communists have set up stall opposite Parliament with the offer of one free tree for each MP to take back to their constituency and plant. Go back to your constituencies, and prepare to save the planet…

Guido thought he’d pop along to see which MPs have turned down the kind offer, and given the self-professed climate credentials of some MPs he was surprised to see their trees still unclaimed. Appropriately, Barry Gardiner had collected his…

Particularly surprising to see uncollected was Ed Miliband’s tree, who, as a former environment secretary, has made banging on about the environment his métier, Jeremy Corbyn’s, who could easily pop it in the corner of his allotment; and Rory Stewart’s, who made planting 100 million trees one of his key pledges when running for the Tory leadership. Not a spot on Extinction Rebellion’s stated aim of one billion…

Guido also thought Extinction Rebellion might be interested in noting that over the last 35 years, global forest loss has been more than offset by new forest growth anyway. MPs have until early afternoon to collect their sapling. Guido’s sure they would reGreta missing out…

Ed Miliband Called Geoffrey Boycott ‘My Hero’

Since the news of Theresa May’s resignation honours broke, Labour MPs have been falling over themselves to call for cricketing legend Geoffrey Boycott to have his proposed Knighthood withdrawn due to his abuse conviction.  Harriet Harman, coincidentally running for the next speaker, has been vocally touring the studios…

Labour figures haven’t always been opposed to Boycott, in 2010 Ed Miliband described the England cricketer as “my hero”, due to being attracted to the “charisma of imperfection”. Who was deputy leader under Ed Miliband? None other than Harriet Harman…
